Derek Bovard, a 40-year-old computer technician in Castle Rock, Colo., was up watching Fox News early the morning of Jan. 18 when he saw the news that President Obama’s advisors were launching a new advocacy group called Organizing for Action.
Bovard jumped on the computer and snapped up the domain name Organizingforaction.net. He then proceeded to configure the site so all hits are directed to the website for the National Rifle Assn. – the very group that Obama is facing off against in his efforts to toughen gun laws.
[Gray] has registered Bovard's name and pointed the domains to Wikipedia's entry on the Sandy Hook shootings. The domains in question are derekbovard.com, .net, .org and .info. Bovard still has access to a bunch of other extensions, such as .us or .name, to name a couple. Gray emphasized during a phone conversation that he's acting on his own volition and funds for the purchases came out of his own pocket.
The cost to Gray was $25 for one year. Ericgray.com, by the way, is already taken. By a political poet who is not the communications director for Georgia Democrats.
